Derby Day Celebration Pie - MW
Any way - I'm posting this recipe that I found stuck in a cookbook, that was written down by my Granny. It's actually a recipe that my Mom got from a chef who worked at a restaurant in the Doctors Office Building (corner of Floyd & Liberty in downtown Louisville).
More info below.
- 1 c
- 1/2 c
- 1 stick
- butter, melted and cooled
- 1 c
- broken pecans or chopped walnuts
- 1 c
- semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 tsp
- unbaked pie shell (single crust)
There are some folks who would prick the crust and partially bake it to prevent a soggy crust. I think doing this depends on your weather and if your pie crusts tend to get soggy while baking.
This one doubles easily, too, but I tend to mix the fillings separately to make sure the ingredients stay evenly divided on each pie.
Kern's Kitchen makes their pies with walnuts, but my preference is for pecans. The best way to serve a slice of this pie is warm and topped with real whipped cream - just like Momma Kern would have.
DERBY-PIE® IS A FEDERALLY REGISTERED TRADEMARK of KERN'S KITCHEN and has been baked exclusively by KERN'S KITCHEN since the early 1950s.
